Um, What the Hell?

  • The newly-created agency that investigates allegations of excessive force and brutality by Chicago Police officers plans to hire outside help due to a backlog of complaints.

    The Independent Police Review Authority is an organization separate from the Police Department. It replaced the department-run Office of Professional Standards last year.

    Since its creation, the review authority has dealt with a growing backlog of cases, and the Chicago Tribune reported on Wednesday that the organization has had to turn over some cases to attorneys and private investigators.

    The outsourcing is temporary and will be tightly supervised.
We don't know about any of our readers, but we trust the City about as far as we can throw the fifth floor midget. We trust outside lawyers and PI's about half that distance and we trust IPRA maybe a third of the remaining millimeters.

We don't recall any contract language, Rule, Regulation, General Order or, in fact, any such directive that could conceivably allow outsiders not covered by agreements to investigate Police Officers in any way, shape or form. This is a ridiculous and dangerous precedent and should be dealt with promptly and harshly by the FOP.

When the rights of the citizens are taken away from inside the country, they do it slowly and one step at a time.

The government, the taxing and all the bullshit regulations are going to kick them all in the ass one day when the citizens revolt and have a modern day Boston Tea Party.

One can only hope that instead of tea that is thrown overboard, the throw the elected officials, the aldermen, the mayor and all the lawyers!

Hi SCC,

New Flash! As I predicted, it appears Jody Weis will be bringing a former FBI SES to lead the CPD/IAD. According to reports it will be Patrick Daly who was the SAC of the FBI San Juan Office. This appointment was long needed and well thought out. IAD needs invigoration and new direction.

I also believe that the IPRA will reach out to retired Federal Agents along with retired State and Local officers with investigative experience. This makes sense because you have former sworn criminal investigators who would meet any law enforcement certification requirements (i.e California POST). This would bring in competent ad experienced investigators who will bring out the truth.

I bet Al Sharpton, Jesse J. and Eugene Pinchham would all like a piece of that action.

The city has been able to hire "provisional" employees in the past. If the city counsel creates a budget for temporary investigators, as long as they are under the supervision and follow the rules of IPRA this is probably legal. This might take months if not a year or more to get started.

What I would like to see is what the LAPD has, a statute of limitations on citizens complaints. Unless it involves a crime, a citizen’s complaint cannot be acted upon after 18 months. If it involved a crime, the statute of limitations of the crime takes precedence.

Frankly, I would rather deal with a professional, a retired law enforcement officer, who does not have an ax to grind than some of the anti-white racist OPS hacks I had to deal with years ago.

Stay safe, get your union lawyer, and answer all questions carefully.

Ardelean, a five-year veteran of the force, allegedly drove his SUV over the center line and crashed into another car in 2900 block of North Damen, Cook County prosecutors say.

The crash killed Miguel Flores, 22, and Erick Laguna, 21, two longtime residents of Cicero, authorities said.

Ardelean was initially charged with a misdemeanor in the case.

If convicted of the new charges, Ardelean faces six to 28 years in prison, authorities said.

check this out:

Meet the Rumbler.

The high-tech blaster is being used along with the traditional siren. It is aimed at grabbing people's attention and getting them to make room for officers responding to emergencies, helping police navigate through traffic faster and safer. People can feel it from about 200 feet away.

D.C. police have 49 cars equipped with the Rumblers, spread across the city. The Rumbler is part of a lights-and-sirens package the department is phasing in over several years as it gets new cars and retires old ones. In about four years, all of the department's 767 marked patrol cars likely will have them.

With a pair of high-output woofers and an amplifier, the Rumbler is not louder than a regular siren. It gets its message across with low-frequency sound waves that shake everything, including rear-view mirrors.

The Rumbler is meant to be used judiciously, in situations where motorists should pull over to make way for the police. It is timed to turn off automatically after 10 seconds. Still, police officials said, some people might be startled when they first experience it. And it remains to be seen if the public will view all that shaking as a helpful warning or just a nuisance.

Second, you just got the entire early roll call flying from 008 to Archer & Narragansett and what do these two school officers do? They drive off saying they will handle it in school tomorrow (today); WTF!!! You endandered P.O.s who rushed like mad to get to the 10-1 (that wasn't) and you do nothing? Finally, on days that school is out she cannot/refuses to work alone. What makes her better than any other P.O. working 99?
While on the 008 school patrol, looks like a certain P.O. V.K. made his phone calls crying to his juice saying he wants back on second watch which he missed by bid and is getting it.

$100,000 REWARD OFFERED IN MURDER OF MAYWOOD POLICE OFFICER

Robert D. Grant, Special Agent-in-Charge of the Chicago office of the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) and Elvia Williams, Chief of the Maywood, Illinois Police Department (MPD) are asking for the public's help in identifying the individual(s) responsible for the October 23, 2006 murder of MPD Officer Thomas Wood.

A nine year veteran of the MPD, Officer Wood was found shot to death in his marked patrol vehicle near the intersection of 6th Avenue and Erie Street, at the end of his scheduled afternoon shift. Officer Wood was shot multiple times and was pronounced dead after being transported to Loyola Medical Center. Officer Wood, who was a canine officer for the MPD, was seated in the driver's seat of his vehicle with the engine running and the vehicle in gear. Robbery did not appear to be a motive as Officer Wood's weapon and wallet were still on his person.

Officer Wood was active in the MPD's effort to investigate and eliminate gang activity within the village and it is believed that his murder was related to these efforts.
Officer Wood was 37 years of age and is survived by his wife and five children.

A reward of up to $100,000 is being offered by the Village of Maywood for information that leads to the identification and arrest of the person or persons responsible for this crime.

In addition to joining Chief Williams in publicizing this reward offer, Mr. Grant also wants to announce that the FBI will be assisting the MPD, not only with the investigation into Officer Wood's murder, but will also begin investigating gang activity and drug trafficking in the western suburb.

Anyone having any information about the murder of Officer Wood is asked to call the Chicago office of the FBI at (312) 421-6700.

EDITOR'S NOTE: Additional copies of the attached reward flyer are available from the Chicago FBI's press office at (312) 829-1199.

At one point in time I thought that Daley would eventually go prison. Now I realize how much "whack" he has nationally. Who else could save their face by having their police department secretly put under federal oversight? That is what we are going to have; a fed in charge of IAD, Training and Superintendent. This is the exact same ting the Feds would have done. Are you gonna try to tell me that Daley did this of his own free will?

OFF TOPIC EMERGENCY:

It appears the Cook County State's Attorney Office is continuing the fight to use administrative breath tests in criminal proceedings.

In the case of PO Ardelean, the officer refused a criminal breath test. Today, the ASA at the bond hearing stated that experts would use his administrative breath results (which were under the legal limit) to extrapolate an illegal BAC at the time of the collision.

Where is FOP?

It appears that it would be unwise to follow any direct order under any circumstance that would provide evidence against yourself. This would apply to breath tests for DUI or ANY allegation that an officer committed a crime.

With the top job up for grabs, the CCSAO (Cook Co. States Attorney Office) has trampled 5th Amendment rights for all officers in the CPD. Aldermen were ready to march in the streets because of ALLEGATIONS that murders' constitutional rights were violated, but instead they settled for a $20 million payout. Now, the CCSAO openly professes that CPD officers can be forced to give evidence against themselves and the FOP is silent.

Maybe it would be best if we all just remained silent. I hear Jody will open a new unit up with juicy perks and we can all spend our remaining days climbing over each other trying to get in. Then, once the unit closes, we can use this blog to throw mud at each other. Because after all that's what this job is really all about.

Any competent toxicologist can extrapolate what his BAC was at the time of the crash. Maybe the crash wasn't his fault (I hope) but he was most certainly DUI at the time of the crash.

Being late for work happens! Not finding dope up someones ass happens! But a loaded Joker from Batman revolver in his waistband should never happen. This is the same person a week after getting on tact put a firearm in a blue property bag for inventory. WOW
The tact LT never got word of this, which is fine to take care of shit in house. But same tact LT was made aware of negativity surrounding certain officers in the back. I wonder why there is so much negativity.

You are absolutely right that any competant toxicologist can figure our a bac level "x" amount of hours after a crash, that's not what is pissing people off. There are court rulins that clearly state that an administrative submission of a chemical test CANNOT be used in a criminal case due to the duress the person is under (ie, loss of job if refused)...Not saying the officer was 100% right, but the state wouldn't charge joe nobody and they are trying their best to find a reason to charge him...That's BS

-----------------------------------

For the millionth time, our residency requirement is not codified in the ILCS. Bringing the residency issue to an arbitrator is codified.

We cannot bring the residency issue to an arbitrator and have the arbitrator overturn it.

If the city agrees with the FOP and it is allowed by the city it does not need to be brought before an arbitrator.

ILCS has nothing to do with said agreement.

As it stands, we cannot bring up residency as a proposal with the city, and then subsequently bring it before an arbitrator when the city tells us to pound salt like we can with other issues in the contract.

There is a difference between that and what you said.

We are not locked into the residency requirement by the ILCS. It can be bargained away.

SCC is not FOP. The truth of this matter is that FOP wrote the legal brief that cause a judge to recently EXCLUDE an administratively ordered blow that the State wanted to use as evidence. The State will likely appeal and this will be the big test case. FOP is extremely concerned and proactive on this issue. They are out front fighting for your rights.
